dept. of upcoming elections, v.2

If you’ve somehow managed to miss the incessant television ads (featuring an elephant, donkey, and creepy Statue of Liberty making their way into a voting booth!) explaining the new Washington primary system and didn’t get the memo sent to postal customers, you might have been confused when your absentee ballot arrived this week.
A complete voter guide, with even more instructions about the single-party primary vote is available at Particularly helpful is a candidate guide to help you choose between, for instance, Mike the Mover and Ron Sims (among others) for the Democratic gubernatorial contenders.
How they decided that the Democratic section should be coded red, the Republican section in green, and the Libertarian in blue is beyond me. Didn’t we settle this in 2000, with the whole red-state / blue-state conventional wisdom?

Vote in person, or have your ballot in the mail by September 14, the date of the state primary election.

    The parties drew for the colors.
    Please vote Libertarian, and vote for me! Thanks!
